Loa Blasucci My dad has great pockets. He can tune your car or butcher a side of beef with the tools he carries on him. At any given moment he can come up with the exact piece of hardware necessary. It's like watching Mary Poppins pull that lamp out of her carpet bag. Always makes me feel safe. A couple of years ago, (or so) when I was in my teens, he was having a bad time resolving a situation. We sat down to talk and he said, "It's like this." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a heavy duty metal tape measure.

The battle of the studio-made movie versus the independent auteur rages on in Hollywood but a Spanish revolution of new voices has changed the scene dramatically. No longer are Latino directors part of a fringe network making foreign language films seen only in art houses. Suddenly in crossover English new Latino directors from Mexico have found an international audience and entered the mainstream of movie magic. Born within four years of each other and all self-taught, three filmmakers in particular, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron, have broken the foreign language film barrier by moving seamlessly back and forth between Spanish and English-language films, bringing to their more commercial productions the rhythms and perceptions of their Mexican heritage.
